Many men with beards avoid eating ice cream in public to avoid the embarrassment of a messy beard. Haagen-Dazs wanted to give these men the opportunity to enjoy ice cream without being self-conscious. Haagen-Dazs and VMLY&R created Beard Bibs, a way for men to protect their facial hair while consuming the sweet treat.
The bibs were offered in Haagen-Dazs stores and kiosks in Dubai on posters as tear-offs in 6 different designs. Each one depicts a beard style inspired by several cultures and eras including Cavemen, Confucius, Pharaoh, Assyrian, Viking and Sadhu.
